Frequently Asked Questions

A

No. Whether you’re a student an alum, or a parent, you simply need to fill out your profile. Midd2Midd features resource libraries with information on best practices and suggested approaches, and our program staff are here to answer your questions or provide guidance. Our resources will provide info and nudges to help facilitate connections that are meaningful to you. Mentors speak directly from the wisdom of their experiences and contribute in accordance with the time they are willing to spend.

MiddMentors: We encourage students and mentors connect at least once per month, on their own schedules. Any more is up to the participants. Our matches run the length of the academic year—along the way, you may meet more or less, depending on your preferences and individual situation. That’s a small commitment that can make a big difference! Because we pair based on the interests of mentors and students, not every mentor will be matched every cycle.

MiddConnect. Since MiddConnect is all about one-off connections, the time commitment varies. Alumni control their availability—use the settings to automatically limit the number of people who contact you on a monthly basis. Once you hit that cap, your profile remains visible but your contact information is taken down until the next month.

MiddGroups. MiddGroups work for you. They’re your niche networks, built around specific topics and affinities. Hop in and hop out at will.

To do so, log in to your account and click your photo icon in the upper right corner. From here, select “My Preferences” and then either “Availability” or “Privacy.” To scale back on the number of requests you get, adjust your settings using “Availability.” To hide your profile, click “Privacy” and adjust your settings there. To permanently delete your account, click on “My Preferences” and then “Account.”
